I just received a phone call from a ‘highly respectable’ IT company; the caller ID showed a number of 002538020308 which seemed strange considering it was a ‘London based’ company.
Anyway it seems my luck was in as the nice foreign lady wanted to help me with an outbreak of rogue viruses! Apparently they’re crashing computers in my town and mine had become infected; who’d have known but I’m glad I had found out in the nick of time!
I explained to the nice foreign lady that I used to be an IT Systems Engineer and these viruses must be super high tech as my computer seemed OK; the line suddenly went dead leaving me sacred and nervous. My computer seems OK but she did say it was INFECTED and yours may be too!
Foreign number, pigeon English and rampant rogue viruses on the prowl; be warned folks we live in dangerous times!
If you have received this call and then found this post by searching Google et al, yes it’s a scam and well done for not falling for it!
